- What is EMSA and why do I have to pay for it?
EMSA is for emergency medical services in the city of Jenks. Part of the fee is for Jenks to participate with EMSA and the other part of the fee is for Total Care for all residents. Total Care provides that there will be no charge for ambulance service if you are a resident of Jenks. EMSA will charge your insurance, but there will be no out of pocket expense for the ambulance. Calls about your EMSA bill should be placed directly to EMSA.
